New Ford Focus convertible

Concept Cars: Fors Focus Concept Car
Ford launched a hard-topped coupé-cabriolet version of its Focus at the Geneva auto show.

The automaker says the new Ford Focus Coupé-Cabriolet is its response to the positive feedback on the Ford Vignale concept car shown at the Paris auto show way back in 2004

The chopped Focus with the folding hardtop was developed jointly by Ford Europe and Italy's Pininfarina design house that has a worldwide reputation designing some of the world's most attractive vehicles

The Focus Coupé-Cabriolet from Ford will go into volume production around the middle of 2006.

"We were delighted by the reaction to the Vignale concept car and determined to take it to volume production," said Gunnar Herrmann, vehicle line director for the Focus.

"We also wanted to keep the production model as true to the beautiful concept car as we could while making it convenient and affordable for everyday use."

The Ford Coupé-Cabriolet engines:

75kW 1.6-litre Duratec.
108kW two-litre Duratec.
102kW two-litre Duratorq TDCi diesel.
